Rising Stars 2021 – apply now!

The competitions are designed to give rising stars from the Bay of Plenty a platform to exhibit their talent and to introduce them to the New Zealand public. There will be two categories: the concerto competition for young instrumentalists and a competition for young composers. Note that there will be no aria competition this year.

The competitions are open to students who will be from 12-18 years old on 21 August 2021 and enrolled at any school (or home-schooled) in the Bay of Plenty. The competition concert will take place on Saturday 21 August 2021 at a venue to be announced.
